PPP denies Zardari statement on army chief’s extension
Talking to media at Islamabad Press Club, Qamar Zaman Kaira said the party is inquiring as to who issued the statement on army chief’s decision of not taking extension attributing it to Asif Ali Zardari.
However, party leader Nafeesa Shah denying any such development said that the former president issued no statement yesterday and termed it mismanagement on certain level within the party.
“Peoples Party backs military offensives,” she said reminding that the operation in Swat was launched in the tenure of former PPP-govt.
“However, co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari cannot issue such a statement pertaining to the extension in service of the army chief.”
She added that the party is trying to identify as to by whom and at which level this mismanagement took place.
